Today I woke up to a nasty surprise.
My goal today was to go for a run outside to "enjoy this wonderful fall weather we continue to keep having".
Alas, Mother Nature had other plans for me.
And so I didn't leave the house until 4:00pm, albeit very begrudingly and only for an hour. And the reason I left the house was in fact to go for a run, although it was of the Starbucks kind:)
Winter is upon us friends. And today I am feeling a tiny flutter in my heart that is saying "it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas". Not because of the snow dump, but because the tell-tale Red holiday cup has returned.
When it gets cold out, I have a tendency to hibernate. And not just because of all the school work I have. I enjoy trying new recipes or just sticking to comfort food.
In light of the recent snowfall I felt a need for comfort food so I made a nice meal for the BF and I. Unfortunately the BF massacred it to look like this:
Some new recipes I have tried:
The Pioneer Woman's Twice Baked Potatoes
Jolene's Burnt Grapes. A delicious and very easy dessert.
Here it is in a nutshell:
Wash 5 cups of seedless red grapes.
Mix 2 cups of sour cream with 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla.
Mix with grapes gently and pour into a 9x13 pan.
Bring 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup butter to boil and pour over the grape mixture in the pan.
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours.
Food always makes me feel better when the weather is crappy. I may be eating a lot this winter.....
